  • Harnessing and using this data effectively is the new basis for competitive advantage. Data analytics can identify opportunities to increase workforce efficiency; improve pull-through, reduce defect rates, and increase speed in loan manufacturing; and help you reduce risk

Law firms and legal departments have always had the expertise and talent to discover and assemble data into facts, insights and results. In today’s world where 2,500,000,000,000,000,000 bytes of data are created every day, this is both the opportunity and challenge for the business of law. And it’s not just tremendous volumes of data that will be the challenge, it is the vast array of structured, semi-structured and unstructured data that requires a new way of thinking.

The opportunities for law firms and legal departments include:

  • Put artificial intelligence and cognitive computing to practical use in legal research, e-discovery, compliance, contract analysis, case prediction, and document automation.
  • Don’t fall behind with old processes; instead, implement big data solutions to automate and optimize routine questions, sifting data to quickly predict case outcomes.
  • Demonstrate a mastery of big data management and cognitive computing as a competitive differentiator and faster time-to-results for a client base that is less-prepared for the data growth.
